This poem is as much about war as it is about peace. Inspired by Biblical and lyric styles.

28th June 2015 at 03:04am / edited 24th July 2015, 01:30 GMT

The sun shall ascend in the morning, in a benediction of golden light.
Birdsong shall scatter through the air as brightly as sunlight on water,
butterflies shall rise in ragged flight, seeking out meadow nectars,
and peace shall break out in the peaks and valleys.

The man who works the land shall return, hungry and weary from his toil
to find his house still standing, as it always was before.
The rivers shall leap and dance over rocks and crash into waterfall ravines,
with no influx of blood to despoil their waters.

Peace shall resound in the calls of birds and laughter of children;
man shall lie with woman in untroubled spiritual and physical accord;
curve into hollow to curve, softly entwining and cradled in love,
with no sudden sounds to disturb their loving.

The moon shall rise in the evening; swathed in luminescent clouds.
Retiring songs of birds shall herald the coming of twilight.
Peaceful breath of slumber shall rise and fall as night descends,
and all closed eyes shall be open again at sunrise.

This is a nicely flowing poem that reveals some noble beliefs. There are a few too many "shalls" in it for me, reminding me of those scary commandments. Maybe you could work in a couple of "shan'ts?" :)

I find this lovely and meaningful and I yearn for what it expresses to come true. Thank you for sharing this gift, Sara. Love, peace, and best wishes to you,
